I'm developing a game that inspires kids to change the world through social entrepreneurship. It's at the prototype stage - www.isavetheworld.ca. I'm seeking a passionate, talented game designer to partner with me on this project and work together to create positive change through gaming.
I'm a producer who is securing funding, distribution and handling all of the business elements of the project. What I need is a tech-savvy partner who wants to dig into this with me and create an awesome game that can make a real difference. If you're interested, I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for reading!
Hey Ellen, Can you give more info about the project, and the responsibilities of the game designer you are looking for. I'm a game designer, with experience working on mobile games, and have worked with large companies like Gameloft and small indie games for my own team Unravel Games.
I'm in the Philippines. :)
I stumbled across this post yesterday and it caught my attention. Unfortunately, I am not a game designer, so I'm unable to fulfill the role that you are looking for. Currently, I'm just a first year university student with an interest in using games to teach and create social change. I am wondering if it would still be possible for me to tag along and contribute to the creation of this game.
Thanks for reaching out! There is definitely lots to do beyond designing the game and any contribution is welcome. One thing I want to do is demonstrate the research that exists showing how games can influence positive behaviour and subsequently positive change. I also want to learn about ways to make the game most effective to motivate and inspire players to change the world.
Where are you located?
That sounds awesome!
I'm also in Canada.
Nice - I'm in Victoria, where are you?
Do you want to email me at email@example.com and we can brainstorm potential next steps?
Interesting idea and development. Do you have a "target" age for kids, for example, age 10 to 15 perhaps ? My focus is for teens plus young adults for my current proposal "Waldenthree Travelogue".
Love to connect you with interested gave developers here at Fairfax, VA Metro DC Hub if possible in future.
